What are we learning?

In English…

In English, we will be reading ‘Beowulf’ as retold by Michael Morpurgo. We will write a persuasive letter.

In Maths…

In Maths, we will explore the measurement of mass, temperature, time and length. We will convert units of measure e.g. millimetres to centimetres and from centimetres to metres.


In Science…

Our unit in Science is ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’. During this unit of work, children will learn the seven life processes that distinguish living from non-living things. They will consolidate and extend previous learning on the life cycles of plants and animals, comparing and describing differences in the life cycles of mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and insects.


In RE…

In RE, we will be looking at the role and significance of women in the Bible and God’s big story. We will be reflecting on the actions of these women and considering what we can learn from their stories. We will learn about the story of  Esther and the Jewish festival of Purim.

In Topic…

In topic, our primary focus is History. We will explore Britain’s settlement by Anglo-Saxons and Scots.
